    21 | Jo Lual Acuil Jr. - Resilience (Under The Surface)

    Jo Lual Acuil Jr, NBL star for Melbourne United, gives us an honest and raw insight into everything that he has been through in life. Some serious challenges along the way where he was literally fighting to survive has made him realise that basketball adversity isn’t real adversity.

    Fleeing South Sudan on foot at 3 years old, the NBA shutting him down due to heart conditions, being told he’d never play again at 18 years old - these are just a few insights Jo gives us but through it all he has remained strong, confident and is where he is today because of that mindset.

A well overdue conversation

Freaking love this podcast and the conversations within. It dissects the highs and lows of mental health that athletes are often assumed to be immune to. Love the vulnerability from both the presenter and guest speakers!
